COVID-19 has drastically changed the ways in which we interact, making it more difficult for seniors to gather together. To meet that challenge, TheSeniorList is launching a lineup of virtual classes (via Zoom) hosted by various experts, designed to help adults learn new skills, keep active, or even meditate, all from the comfort of their home.

The upcoming lineup will include social media 101, mental wellness, balance and flexibility, and even making a fall apple crisp.

Best of all, the weekly classes are free and open to everyone, so you can feel free to invite a friend. And, with each class, The SeniorList will make a donation to a charity of the instructor’s choice. It’s a win-win-win!

Check out the class lineup below, and sign up here.
